Temporary Shelter for Tsunami Victims

Significant amount of People displaced by Tsunami are still in refugee camps and it is likely that they would have to be accommodated for a longer time, until they are provided with permanent shelter. But it is not feasible to house them in refugee camps not geared to accommodate such a large population on a continuous basis. In order to give decent temporary shelter for them, the following is proposed. The temporary solution proposed can be erected using a timber frame. GI sheets already available with NHDA would be used as the roofing material, while plastic sheet that is going to be provided by the UNHCR is suggested for wall cladding. The timber is used as the framework with the intention of using same timber element in permanent houses that is going to be followed.
